Wedding Song Suggestions

Hello there! As I imagine you guys have plenty on your plate with a wedding approaching, I wanted to suggest some songs GUARANTEED to get people out of their chairs. These are tried and trued songs that make people get up and dance (or at least one [myself]). I’ve never seen them flop in the field.

Feel free to ignore, but I couldn’t in good conscience allow a playlist be created without offering some suggestions.

There are 5 suggestions for each part of the evening.

REMEMBER: No matter what songs you ultimately go with “Shuffle” is not your friend in this scenario. It is vital each song hits at the appropriate time in the evening to ensure maximum fun-ness. You have to make people feel comfortable with classics, then ease into the end of the evening. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
